It's not a long term position, I think Mum will need fulltime care within a year or so, and at that point I will be seeking work in something animal related, or people-huggy-related, i might even seek out a period of employment outside the country.
In all honesty, after I let go of mum, I really want to spend some time in South Africa. I dont care about money, I want to work with the wildlife - in safari and with great whites - anything i can do to improve the lifespan and quality of life of all these animals, means more to me than buying a house and rubbishy paraphernalia that goes along with it.
I don't have any kids and I don't know if they are in my future, I guess it depends upon who I fall in love with and whether there are children in their life. I am open at present... more than anything, I want to meet someone who appreciates my odd sense of humour, and is open to whatever life might bring.
I'm bopping along to the music in my head.
I'm really good at thinking outside the box.
Movies/TV - I will watch anything that will make me laugh, think or squeal. I love and am enjoying The Walking Dead, House of Cards, OITNB, Brooklyn Nine Nine, Rectify. I just rewatched Parks and Rec. Ron Swanson I'd my hero.
Music sees me largely stuck in my 80's/90's past. The bands I still listen to most are The Smiths, Morrissey, Nick Cave, Nine Inch Nails, Ride, The Cure, Depeche Mode, New Order, Pulp, Blur, Pixies. I have a guilty pleasure for Gwen Stefani, Lady Gaga and Pink.
Food is great! Unfortunately, I can't eat as much as I used to. Look up Gastric Sleeve Surgery. Best decision of my life but it's meant some big life changes. I can eat about 1/3 the normal meal... if we go out to dinner and order two entrees, we will probably both end up satisfied.
Moments of solitude
You don't mind curvy ladies. I am a size 18 and have been for a while now. I am in proportion. If youre thinking "you'd be so sexy if you just lost a few kilos" then you can move along. I am who i am and i love my squishy bits.
You have no hang-ups and are looking for a sexually fulfilling long-term relationship. Casual sex seekers will be blocked without response.
You want a buddy to go walking with or hiking with or hanging out at the beach. I'm looking to increase my physical fitness and would love to do this with a buddy.
You want to talk about something other than the weather or sports.
You don't want to hang out in a pub. I don't drink so pubs are pretty boring. But hey! I'm a cheap date.
